Crocker Art Museum Sacramento CA
More exhibition details
. . .During the first half of the 20th century, the period we refer to as the ‘Golden Era’ in tile making on the West Coast, few companies excelled in the craft of pottery and tile making as did California Faience. The simplicity of the form coupled with the quality of the glaze came to represent the quintessence of Arts and Crafts ideals. Historian Kirby Brown tells this remarkable story from a grandson’s perspective, with his heart in every illustrative detail.

Each year the Tile Heritage Foundation has held an Artisan Planter Auction Fundraiser in Doylestown, PA during the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works (MPTW) Tile Festival. Local artists have embellished “fibre cement” boxes in unique ways in the mosaic style. The boxes were contributed by Campania International. 100% of the proceeds from auctions support the Foundation’s ongoing tile history archiving project!

With The Doylestown Tile Festival & Garden Box Live Auction having been cancelled in May due to COVID-19 - Tile Heritage is having a "VIRTUAL" Garden Box Auction this month, July 2020 - our sincere thanks to all of the contributing Ceramic and Mosaic Artists for making this possible.
